Andrew (Andy) Christian Bohrnsen passed away at his home in Goodyear, Arizona, on April 4 of this year. Andy was born on April 12, 1949, in Spokane, but he was raised in Hoquiam, Washington, where his dad was Superintendent of Schools and his mom was a teacher. He was a straight-A student and a standout athlete in football, wrestling and golf. Andy graduated from the University of Washington in 1971 (magna cum laude) and remained a Husky fan and booster for the rest of his life. He graduated from the Gonzaga School of Law (magna cum laude) and passed the Washington State Bar in 1974. Andy then embarked on one of the busiest and most successful careers any lawyer could aspire to. He tried over a hundred jury trials, in state and federals courts, to verdict — a remarkable achievement for any lawyer, by any measure. He argued 75 appeals in various state and federal courts of appeal. Again, a remarkable achievement for any lawyer in any era. Andy was a competitor. He was a fighter. He was a partner in the Spokane firm of Bohrnsen, Stocker, Smith, Luciani, Adamson at the time of his passing. One of the greatest, if not the greatest star in Andy’s life was his wife Lynn. Her care and devotion to him were more than a source of comfort. She inspired him. She truly walked with him until the end. Andy had a deep spiritual side. His good psychology was usually also good theology. Andy is survived by a loving family that remained important to him, including his wife Lynn, his sons Kevin, Christian, Matthew and Michael, and his daughter Ann. He is also survived by his brother John and many grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Andy’s passing has left a big void in many of our lives.

Lilly A. Einert Lilly Anna Lena (Ann) Coughran Bassett Einert passed away peacefully on April 11, 2019, at St. Peter’s Hospital in Olympia, Washington. She was 99 years and almost four months old. (Yes, when you’re that amazing, you count the months). She was born Dec. 24, 1919, to Charles P. Coughran and Carrie May Roberts Coughran in Norman, Arkansas. On July 9, 1937, Ann married Leighton Austin Bassett in Arkansas. They soon moved to McCleary, Washington, where they lived and raised their family, consisting of four boys — Don, Ken, Jerry and Mike, and daughter Karen. As if raising five children wasn’t enough, Ann worked at Mark E. Reed Hospital in McCleary for 20-plus years. After retirement, Leighton and Ann enjoyed traveling south to the sun, especially Quartzite and Yuma, Arizona. Sadly, Leighton passed away in 1980. In 1984, Ann married Ewell C. Einert in McCleary, Washington. They spent many years working on their extensive garden, fishing, camping,and traveling south to Yuma before his death in 2011. Ann then moved to the Beehive Retirement Center in McCleary, Washington. She enjoyed playing bingo, Sunday church service, visiting with friends, weekly pizza/game days with Ken & Karen and Sunday dinners with the Olson & Vessey families. Throughout her life, Ann enjoyed gardening; cooking (her cinnamon rolls, blackberry cobbler, creamed
corn, and biscuits & gravy were family favorites); clam digging, camping, playing Aggravation, cards and dominoes (she always won); and truly anything involving time with her family. She loved watching sports, especially the Seattle Mariners. Ann was extraordinarily warm and kind, making everyone around her feel welcomed and loved. She claimed that the secret to her long life was that she “never stopped moving” and that she used half & half (because that makes everything better). Ann was preceded in death by her five siblings, her parents, her sons Jerry and Mike Bassett, her daughter Karen Bassett Olson, her son-in-law John Olson, daughter-in-law Wendy Bassett, grandson Austin Bassett, great-grandson Greyson Vessey and an infant daughter, Patricia.

Anthony Cemelich — Aug. 11, 1922 to April 12, 2019 One of the last greatest generations, Anthony “Tony” Cemelich, passed onto his eternal home on April 12, 2019. His life was a testimony of a man, husband, father and citizen that was memorable in many ways. Born in Hoquiam on Aug. 11, 1922, to Mark and Anna Cemelich, his early years were marked by the country in the area of the Great Depression. From childhood until the end of his life, he lived a life of tenacity and hard work. Tony graduated from HHS in 1942 and, shortly thereafter, entered the Navy, serving in the Asiatic Pacific theatre from 1943-1946. His military years were a highlight in his life, often reminiscing about the people and places he had experienced. In July 1947, while transporting a friend to Tacoma, he met Marianne Sterbick. It was love at first sight and three months later, they were married, a marriage lasting 67 years. In 1947, he also began his career as a Hoquiam fireman, retiring in 1974. His fellow firefighters were his compatriots and even after retiring, he retained his strong ties with his friends at the station. But Tony’s true passion was working on his property on the bay (off the Hoquiam Airport Road). When he wasn’t at the fire station, he would be down at the bay, firing up his small tug boats and going out into the Grays Harbor Bay to pick up loose logs. He had all the equipment needed to pick up his haul from the water (with the help of his son, Peter), then load it onto his log truck and take it to be sold for wood products. When Tony
wasn’t selling logs, he was finding salvaged products that he would acquire and then sell his inventory of industrial odds and ends. Tony was an active member of Our Lady of Good Help Catholic Church, a 4th degree Knights of Columbus member and worked on various projects at church. During his retirement years, he spent a lot of time traveling with his wife. He traveled to Florida for 20-plus years visiting his son Anthony and his family. Another memorable trip was traveling to Croatia, his parents’ homeland, where he explored his heritage and met extended family members that were still living there. In 2010, the city of Hoquiam honored him as Pioneer of the Year. Tony stood out as a man who was self-made in the simplest way, by hard work, and his dedication to faith, family, and self-preservation. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. After his wife died in 2014, Tony reluctantly moved to Vancouver so he could be closer his daughters, Marianne and Julie. But his heart was in Hoquiam and he often spoke of how he missed his life there. He is survived by his sons, Anthony and Peter, daughters, Marianne and Julie, four grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Services were held on Wednesday April 17, in Hoquiam, Washington. A viewing was at Coleman’s Mortuary and then a Rosary and Mass at Our Lady of Good Help Church with burial and reception following.
Mize of Tennessee; grandchildren Alexa Couch, Arley Couch, Ava Couch, Roman Joines and Grant Joines. Memorials may be made to Mary Bridge Children’s Tree House. A celebration of Gregory’s life was held on Saturday, April 27, 2019, at Calvary Chapel of Montesano. To share memories or express condolences please visit www.harrisonfamilymortuary.com.
